I am a graduate of CWRU in 1972 but a Buckeye fan since 195?. I daily drive past Woody Hayes Quaker Stadium where Woody made his head coaching debut, where Dave Leggett played quarterback before leading the Buckeyes to the 1954 National Championship, and also where Cie Grant terrorized quarterbacks long before that memorable day in January 2003.

Clearly the coaches and the returner knew the rules better than most of the folks commenting on this thread.  People are confusing the NFL rule with the college rule.

This is definitely correct.  In college, a kickoff in the end zone is a dead ball unless the receiving team advances the ball.  In the NFL, the kickoff is live until downed or advanced.

My wife can relate to you Lew.  She was diagnosed with Crohn's in 1976 when we hadn't heard the name before.  She almost didn't make it through 1977 but the resection was successful and she has been in remission for 42 years now and delivered two healthy children in 1978 and 1982.

More than just the 47 boxes.  The other stuff isn't a bone of contention though.

The wife has already informed me that the cleanout better be finished before the lease runs out on our Ohio rental house.  If not, she will hire someone to come in and haul it out and she is serious.

What is most amazing about Plesac is that he is leading in pickoffs with only 13 starts compared to about 25 for the starters who have been at it all season.  And let's not forget that he is a righty and lefties normally lead in pickoffs with their built in advantage.

Well, I have been married for 47 years and it is one SHOE box per year.  I have to consolidate them soon as we will be living in a condo as our only dwelling in a couple of years and there is no space for them.

My wife would say that I collect paper since she accuses me of never throwing anything away.  What I have specifically kept is one shoe box of financial records from each year of marriage which is now 47 boxes and memorabilia from vacations.
